gun law reforms. mayor bloomberg told nbc's david gregory on "meet the press" that lawmakers are going to spern the public at their peril. >> if 90% of the public want something and their representatives vote against that, common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that. >> later in the same program, mr. common sense, himself, the nra's wayne lapierre dismissed the mayor's campaign as a mere vanity project. >> he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants, they don't want him in their homes, don't want him telling them what food to eat. they shiure don't want him tellg them what defense firearms to own. he can't buy america. >> right. of course, the nra never tries to use its financial resources to influence opinions. wayne lapierre seems to forget mayor bloomberg doesn't need to buy public opinion on this issue because the majority of americans agree with him. between 85% and 91% of americans support universal background checks in recent polls. that includes 85% of gun owners. so mor

ground in the years to come that real money can be put behind a gun law reform message, and it can be a winning message. the fact of the matter is, i watchedway lapierre call mayor bloomberg nutty this morning. well, wayne lapierre is about as nutty as a bag of trail mix when it comes down to issues like this. the end of the day, you're having this kind of gun violence, it happened on a day after day basis, americans want real change. they want universal background checks. you know, they do want, you know, limits on high capacity magazines. they do want a ban on assault weapons that can fire multiple, multiple rounds without reload. they do want those things. you won't see it in this legislation, but what mayor bloomberg and other mayors around the nation are doing will be a kick in the right direction. >> a lot of opposition from republicans and a number of democrats as well against the assault weapons ban specifically mayor bloomberg on "meet the press" earlier. pretty much saying that it probably won't pass. take ap listen. >> we are going to have a vote for sure on assault weap
court is hearing arguments over critical case that could influence voting laws across the country. they're considering an arizona law that tries to keep undocumented immigrants from voting. the voter-approved proposition 200 requires all state residents that they show proof of u.s. citizenship before registering to vote. a federal appeals court blocked that provision saying it violated federal voting laws. four other states, alabama, georgia, kansas and tennessee have similar voter registration requirements. and another 12 states are considering such legislation. i'm joined by congressman raul grathala, a congressman from arizona. lawyers from arizona are asking to reinstate that 2004 law requiring residents to show one of the following, a driver's license issued after 1996. a birth certificate or a passport. now, supporters are saying that current law isn't strong enough, only require aring one to promise basically under oath that they are a u.s. citizen. what's your thought about this? >> well, you know, and all this after i think after associated press found numerous investigations i
immigration laws among many other responsibilities, but with at least one former doj attorney describing mr. perez as a quote, radical radical who views the law as, quote, a nuisance, you can bet there's a fight over this man's nomination may get intense. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital power editor on power play.com live. tom perez's tenure heading up to the doj has been controversial to say the least, but he is beloved by those on the left as someone who embodies virtually all the principles they stand for. what does it say that president obama is proceeding with that nomination despite some of the controversies that emerged when he they floated the trial balloon earlier? >> well, in washington we can tell a lot more about somebody's intent by what they do than what they say. what we've heard a lot said of the white house of late is that they're interested in reaching out to republicans and forming accords and looking to get past some of the partisan bickering that's gone on back and forth. what the president has done today in nominating mr. perez for this job was to throw down th
ad law that will allow for the restructuring of their banks. this essentially means their sickest and largest banks will be down sized and made more healthy. this was a key demand by the european partners in order to secure a 10 billion euro bailout for the country. when the law is passed depositors who hold less than about $130,000 they will be fully protected. those who are above 100,000 euros are likely to face loss. they may get equity in a new bank, we'll have to wait and see. but bottom line this is what we needed to see by monday in order for the bank to be able to reopen on tuesday with the key backing of the european central bank. back to you. >>> many thank to cnbc michelle caruso-cabrera. let's bring in our contributor, andy bush, author and publisher of the "bush update" and lecamp. >> i would caution optimism. there's going to be a bank run as soon as these banks open up on tuesday. the corporate money will pull out as fast as they can. we're not sure how much will destabilize what's left of the cypriot banking system. this isn't like an earthquake but this will help

for discrimination in this country, there is no room for discrimination in the law of the land. >> there is such optimism, will cain, among gay rights advocates that the u.s. supreme court will rule in their favor. are they right to be so optimistic, though? >> there are two separate cases. there is the one dealing with the defense of marriage act at the federal level and then the one dealing with proposition 8 in california. i do think all those people you show waiting out front assuming they're supporters of same-sex marriage can be optimistic about the defense of marriage act being struck down. but i don't think they should carry as much enthusiasm for the supreme court to yknock down prp 8. i think they will look for a narrow decision that affects possibility just the state of california and they will do that because they want to see the political process play out. they have seen through history with examples like roe v. wade that it's better for democracy to sort these things out than to come from the court. that's just a political analysis and prediction. >> and i hear yo
clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look
and a budget. let's face it, the president as a matter of law, budget october of 1974 requires the president to deliver a budget on or before february 1st, where is the budget. not the republicans problem. we are supposed to act off the president's budget that never arrived. >> megyn: i want to ask you, julie, you mentioned something interesting about how this is aimed towards recapturing the house of representatives in the next mid term election, 2014, and no biden did say, please, please work hard to elect 17 new house democrats. now, that's a serious longshot, it's a hail mary, and i'm not saying it can't hop, but this would be-- >> yeah, but so, that seems to be, the pundits came out and told us that's what president obama was aiming for with the charm offensive speaking to the american people, we're reasonable we can get things done. go with the democrats. and again, why would joe biden not just be going with that for now, knowing there are reporters sitting there, who are going to report what he's saying. >> i don't know. and i know when you speak for a political arm, any kind of polit
in quantico. the base is in lockdown, law enforcement surrounded the building. >> the shooter, an active duty marine, was pronounced dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound by law enforcement at the scene. two other victims, a male and female, both active duty marines, were pronounced dead at the scene. the three marines involved in this incident, all permanent personnel assigned to officer candidate school. all of the candidates in the school are accounted for and safe. >> the base is used mostly for training and it's known as crossroads of the marine corps. we will have a live report at the bottom hour. >>> also following a truly horrifying story from georgia's southern coast. police in brunswick say two young boys between 10 and 15 years old approached a woman and shot her in the leg and then they turned the gun on her baby. as the mother pleaded with them. >> he said i'm going to kill you if you don't give me your money. and i said i swear i don't have any. he said i'm going to kill your baby and -- and i said please don't kill my baby. >> cnn's nick valencia in brunswick, georgi
't want to demonize tax delinquents. heaven forbid we demonize people who break the law. do you think democrats are going to come on board here or protect these people that aren't paying their fair share? you know, there are some concerns. obviously the argument on the other side is well if you fire them they are not going to have a job to pay their taxes at all. -understand that part of the argue: do you want people working for the federal government sometimes in sensitive positions. people who have access to personal information about you that don't have the personal responsibility even to pay their own taxes? that's what's troubling to me. whether you can get bipartisan support or not, i think we can. >> clayton: it's despicable that our tax dollars are paying their salary and they are not paying taxes. it's an outrage absolutely. >> thanks for joining us bright and early. >> any time. >> let us know what you think about this at home. use the hash tag ff weekend. >> jessie: faked an attack to look like a hero on first date. and the plan back fired. should he be sent to the slammer
and there are similarities and the one similarity on this trading floor is look at the gm bankruptcy in the rule of law in the pecking order of financial liabilities, are there similarities? does it rhyme? there's definitely a little anxiety here and how it works is out anybody's guess. right now safety doesn't seem to be as rampant as one would expect. look at a two-day chart of ten and certainly we're down a handful of basis points, but if you open the chart up year to date you can see the pattern and it hasn't been violated that much and we're in a seven-week low yield and look at the backyard of cyprus and you see a different picture and these are ten-year booms and look at year to date and we're making new year to date low yield on the boom because the comp is it's under 140 close on december 31st. let's switch gears here. let's look at a november 1st start date to the euro. you can see that the euro right now is hovering at the lowest levels based on the close that we don't yet know about december 7th. pearl harbor day and it was comping back to november because it isn't on its lowest levels. if

"the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up, let's get the latest on the cyprus report. michelle joins us by phone. >> good evening. the details are changing, but the one core fact important to investors is true. for the first time ever in the european crisis, portions of bank accounts will be seized in order to pay for a bailout. cyprus agreed to this to get a 10 billion euro loan to bail out their banks. what is still unclear and controversial is whether insured deposits will also be seized. original plan was if you had an account in cyprus with less than 100,000 euros, would you have to pay a tax even though it falls bel
. and his new book, "law and disorder." i see what you did there is on shelves now. now that you're retired and unshackled, tell us about some of the more notorious cases that you've worked. >> well, i work cases that receive national publicity and some of the most interesting cases that never received the national publicity. the cases like from david burk wits to the ted bundy, john gacy, to a case in anchorage, alaska, to a plan hunted women down like wild animal. i was over in england on the ripper case. i was in california on the trail side killing case. the unibomber. pretty much a who's who in the types of cases that i work. >> john, i'm kind of curious. not sure exactly how to phrase this. the term would be like a successful serial killer. but somebody who actually gets away with it for a long time. somebody like that have to be of high intelligence to be able to pull it off? >> not really. because sometimes with a high intelligence, they think they're much smarter than law enforcement. i interviewed the btk strangler, bind, torture, kill, a couple years ago. i worked that case back

people and middle class people that use cyprus because of the rule of law, common law, the double tax treaties we have. it's a mistake to think that it is a very special class, of very rich people. these russians have their lawyers, their accountants, many of them have their families living in cyprus. they have their friends. we have a relationship that can with stand a shock like this. >> bearing that in mind, are the banks going to open on tuesday morning? >> i cannot say that. i cannot say that. it's always a mistake to say something like this when you are not completely sure. there is a lot of work to be done. but they will open very soon. >> and how long do you intend to use the capital controls? >> that also i cannot answer. but, again, our objective to keep them as limited and as short as possible. >> and finally, you bypassed the democratic process of a parliamentary vote with this field. will you consider tendering your resignation when you get back to cyprus? >> no, no, we did not bypass the poll. we passed a number of laws two nights ago. we have kept party leaders ip forms

support marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support it personally and as a matter of policy and law. >> while the announcement itself was less than shocking, it symbolized a much larger shift in public opinion. a new "washington post"/abc news poll released yesterday shows that public support for gay marriage is at an all-time high, 58% of americans support it. as do 81% of young adults. ten years ago, only 37% of americans supported same-sex marriage. but if the winds of change are blowing, some parts of the gop have yet to feel them. the same poll showed that only 34% of republicans support same-sex marriage, compared to 72% of democrats, and 62% of independents. and last week at cpac, the schism within the gop was thrown into sharp relief as brian brown, president of the national organization for marriage found himself voicing opposition to gay marriage in front of an empty room. memo to republicans and actually anyone on planet earth -- if you find yourself making an argument to a room full of empty chairs, it might be time to change your strategy. james, i want to go you first
parliament to pass a new law that would give him the ability to wind down one of the troubled banks in this country. this is a signal of the solution that they're finally going to try to seek in terms of getting out of this crisis. right now, he doesn't have the authority to shut down one of the banks, which is pretty odd. most countries, the central bank does have the authority to shut down banks. they need that law passed so they can begin the process. that would be one of the conditions it would have to meet in order to get the bailout from the imf, the european union, and the ecb to prevent the financial collapse of the country on tuesday, when they try to reopen the banks. >> in terms of that one bank, what would be the ripple effects of closing down that one bank? >> reporter: well, it would save them a lot of money, because they don't have to recapitalize it, right? that's why the european union would laike it, because it woul reduce the bailout cost needs. at the same time, you can assume that a lot of employees are going to lose their jobs. there are about 2,000 people who
of the signing of president obama's landmark health care reform law. three years later and the bill is still under attack from republican lawmakers. but increasing number of states that previously opposed the law are now signing on to its medicaid expansion program, with some big surprise turnarounds from states like arizona, and florida. so that leads us to our question of the day for all of you. will obama care stand the test of time? talk to me on twitter. my handle is @alexwitt. and i will be reading some of your tweets throughout the day. a critical move by congress this week to delay furlough notices for hundreds of thousands of pentagon civilian employees. the house passed a bill thursday to extend funding for workers facing sequestration cuts. the measure gives the pentagon time to decide on how best to make those cuts. and joining me now is democratic congressman william enhart. thank you so much for being here, sir. i do appreciate that for this early hour. >> good morning, alex. >> i want to ask you about this whole situation. put it into context for us. how much of an impact does
is basically the states started passing abortion laws, and the supreme court swooped in and said it's all or nothing, and that debate rages 40 years later. i don't know the supreme court will find a constitutional right to marry for anyone because this is something that's traditionally left to the states. public opinion aside, this is not a popularity contest. this is not do we all know and love somebody who's gay? because we all do. >> the supreme court has already recognized there is a fundamental right to marry, it's repeatedly held that. and it held that most famously in the 1967 case, loving versus virginia, which is a case that said the states' decision about making interracial marriage illegal was not constitutional. so having states make these decisions on a fundamental right like marriage is not acceptable under the constitution. >> i would argue it's a little bit more complicated. the problem is this. people who are allowed to get married -- and this is actually the case that's going to be argued tomorrow. people who are allowed to get married, which is now nine states plus d.c.

you so much for being with us. we begin this morning with the battle over reforming our gun laws. vice president joe biden is speaking out and refusing to back down from a proposed assault weapons ban. the vice president spoke to npr about the need to limit large capacity magazines too. >> in newtown, those 20 beautiful babies and six serious people trying to help them, administrators and teachers, all dead, today. the police responded in 2 1/2 minutes. 2 1/2 minutes. this guy had 30-round clips in it. if that had been only ten rounds, who knows whether one or two or five or seven of those people would be alive today. >> or he could have just reloaded and loaded another magazine. >> that's not true. that's not true. because he reloaded with 30-round clips and that's as far as he got. just do the math. >> the vice president continues his message today. he and new york mayor, michael bloomberg, will speak next hour. they'll be joined by families from newtown, connecticut. cnn national correspondent susan candiotti is outside the event in new york. good morning, susan. >> reporter: good m
cain-feinstei-feingold law. it's intention of good but it hurts both to not spend money in the state. >> eric: bob, you must love that. the far right shooting to the center right and center right at the far right all weekend long. >> bob: i don't think priebus came up with off the top of his head. this is based on polling data. there is some truth to what some of the criticisms are. all you have to do is thereon cpac and you could not miss tuitions taking place in the conservative party. not the least of which is for years, national security has been the underpipping of the conservative republican -- underpinning of the con seventive republican movement. now you have ron paul and others like him and others who feel that way that it's not necessarily isolationism, but pulling back from around the world. versus the neokahns still powerful in the republican party and still want to protect american power overse overseas. that is a policy difference. >> eric: one of the things, the issues hit on over the weekend, in reince priebus' autopsy report, reform. this is big for the republican party. they have to figure
this should be handled the law doesn't crack down on people's ability to tap into private exchanges. one thing i think it truly highlights here, if there is a need in social media, even extending into the law breakers, to learn more about what happened, it does, does it not, say something about the energy in this country to produce some truth in this matter? >> yeah. i think there should be more protection for intellectual property on the internet, for people's own communications but i certainly have no faith in the privacy protections now. that is why my e-mails are pretty boring. this is a, dealing with sensitive matters of national security does raise a question, i think, whether classified information may have been compromised and what exactly were the nature of these communications. and, when you consider that other administration officials, former epa administrator, lisa jackson, were using nongovernment chan dmels for their -- channels for their e-mails you have to wonder what is going on inside the administration more broadly. martha: one of the bigger questions that surfaced the last

of years. john boehner said, it's the law of the land. he walked that back afterwards, but that is what he is thinking. this is a fight that will take place in policy documents and political documents like ryan budget but when it comes to funding -- voting on bills that will become law, obamacare -- >> this continuing resolution does not have funding for bom a bomb -- for obamacare. >> it won't. >> they will find a deal to fund it through other monies, they will not crimp it, obama will not sign thinking that will slow it down. >> we will track it, i have to jump, this is a big fed day, stocks generally liked what they heard from ben bernanke, i wonder if he was signaling a little let easy money, that is my take next up on kudlow. there's this island -- and it's got super-cute kangaroos. barrow island has got rare kangaroos. ♪ chevron has been developing energy here for decades. we need to protect their environment. we have a strict quarantine system to protect the integrity of the environment. forty years on, it's still a class-a nature reserve. it's our job to look after them. ...it's
. at a conference in new york city hall they'll be calling for passage of neufeld gun laws that so far are struggling to find support in congress. limiting the number of rounds in magazines to ten bullets. >> you can't get the deer in three shots, you shouldn't be hunting. you're an embarrassment. putting ten rounds, limiting it to ten rounds makes a difference. makes a difference in terms of how many shots you can get off before someone can intervene. >> meantime, new york governor andrew cuomo tells "new york times" that he is in favor of changing the tough new gun law to allow ten rounds of magazines instead of seven because seven-round magazines currently are not manufactured. that law is set to take effect april 15th. >>> we may narrowly avoid a government shutdown with a few days to spare even. the house is expected to vote on a short-term budget measure today that would keep the government funded beyond march 27th. the senate passed a six-month budget measure yesterday that keeps most of the automatic across the board budget cuts in place. >> this may be the first story people l
's law. the next supreme court justice nominee is certainly going to be asked did you pay your sales tax on your internet purchases. and the answer is likely to be no. this will be the equivalent of the old nanny taxes. this is an efficient way of collecting taxes owed. plus let's face it, state governments have a lot of expenses. they have police, firemen and they have to pay for them. >> by taxing? >> it's not fair to compete with brick and mortar retailers. they have to pay it. >> it took a little while but we finally smoked it out. he wants the state to have more revenue for spending. i want you to follow up, grover on what he's saying. is it true all these republican governors really want this? >> well, no. some governors want higher taxes that other people will pay. they'd love to have the federal government pass a law that gave them money and they'd go, oh, look, i don't have any fingerprints on this tax increase. if they wanted to steal this money themselves from their own citizens, they could do that yesterday. this is all a big goldberg contraption to get money out of other peo
followed by a grand coalition with a narrow mandate, including to change the electoral law is the most likely venue. >> how pressing is the need to change electoral law so that if there are fresh elections held, there would be a clear outcome the next time? >> i think it's important. it's important because if they set up in a way in which they stable the larger parties, central right and central left, it will make the outcome of elections more likely to be stable for the next time around. and i think the incentives may be aligned in that respect to play against the pakistan movement. so we think that -- and also it's just needed a 51%. solo it's never easy, we think this time around incentives might be aligned for that change. >> okay. and still italy's market holding up reasonably well ahead of all of this. details on that hopefully out later on today. >>> ahead on the program, oecd's secretary calling for calm over cyprus. do you think the country will leave the eurozone? find outway told cnbc when we come back. impact wool exports from new zealand, textile production in spain, and t
. michelle? >> hey, there, me list sachlt just moments ago, the parliament of cyprus passed a crucial law that will allow for the restructuring of the troubled banks in this country. this is a huge step, because it helps meet the demand of european partners who were waiting for this in order to lend the country 10 billion euros. additionally, important to know that deposit holders with accounts less than 100,000 euros will be fully protected but those above 100,000 will likely be at risk. they'll have to execute over the weekend to meet the deadline by monday, that has been set by the ecb to keep supplingly kwidty. melissa? back to you. >> michelle, thank you so much for that. mike, just quickly in terms of the market action on monday, do you think we're going to respond to this? >> probably see a mild bump to the upside, but really, the issue here is, are we going -- i just don't think it's that important thing. >> all right, our time has i'm melissa lee. "mad money starts right now." >>> i'm jim cramer and welcome to my world. you need to get in the game! he's nuts! they're nuts! they k
the letter of the law than in a place like cyprus and the european union and over let issue is the country and seeing whether or not they can back fdic insurance and we don't have that problem at this point. >> cyprus is hoping to raise money from their bank deposit tax because when the banks do open up and they're closed until thursday. if you're a russian oligarch with $1 billion in a cypriot bank account that is facing a 9.9% tax above 100,000 euros you are going to pull that out and go to jersey -- not new jersey, the cayman islands. >> and they will have it. >> they say it will be one time. >> they'll raise 10 billion and 20 billion. >> they'll come back and that's the issue. >> no, they won't. they'll raise 10 or 20 billion in a one-time move and they'll lose hundreds of billions and the european markets will wipe out hundreds of billions in capital. >> they're doing what they need to do to raise the 5.8 billion euros to get the imf and ecb bailout and they'll deal with the consequences tomorrow. >> this is the old imf. when the imf came to korea in the '90s. when the imf came to lat
, the law gives you a certain age upon when you can't consent. when you're 13 years old, you don't have the legal capacity to say, okay. even if you do say it's okay, the law says you don't know enough, and therefore, it's not okay. >> ryan, just like in steub steubenville, social media is playing a part in this, some say revictimizing the alleged victim here. here's one of the tweets, even if it was all his fault, what was a 13-year-old girl doing hanging around with 18-year-old guys? tough on the victim. >> yeah, it does. you know, it gives them a sense of what really happened. they are going to investigate and look into everything and social media gives them certain leads. when you see comments like that, you say they don't understand what happened here. as joey said, that 13 year old cannot consent. they are not at the age where they can consent. it's not about hanging out with somebody, it's about the fact these young boys, if, in fact, they are guilty, should not have done this. >> let's talk about the culture of athletes, especially football players. what does it say about the cu

is the rule of law being brought into question. can rules about depository insurance change over the course of a weekend? i think the size of cyprus right now, what it represents directly is not a threat. we're assessing. but if this is contained in some broader bailout oriented scheme, i think it could be something weathered by the markets. that said, the rule of law being brought into question is not a good thing. >> steve sacks, are you seeing a reaction in some of the european etfs out there? or are you seeing the same kind of money mentality going into exchange traded funds? what are you seeing out there? >> maria, it's really the same reaction we're seeing in broader equities today. you know, basically an overreaction. you know, we saw higher volumes in volatility spike on the open this morning with that gap lower. we've seen volumes in money flows just sort of steady out throughout the course of the day. obviously a lot of talk this morning on wall street about, you know, what happened over the weekend, you know, with cyprus. at the end of the day i think the market pretty quickly di
that we see going on between what happened in the sarbanes-oxley law. when it was passed, we saw a lot of merger and acquisition activity that took place. a lot of companies basically copitch lating because they couldn't cover the cost. we've got two major pieces of legislation that are taking place right now in the dodd/frank bill, in the financial sector, and in obama care, and in the health care sector. i think you're going to see some of the same things happening. you're going to see a lot of merger and acquisition activity. i like manhattan partners here. >> who gets hardest hit, as a result of obama care and dodd/frank? where are the areas of this market that you want to avoid, given this higher regulatory environment? >> when you see the passage of the sarbanes, you saw a lot of the smaller companies. they merged the together because they needed to get the economies of scale to cover the cost of all that regulation. i think you're going to see some of the same things happening -- >> smaller and mid-cap -- >> exactly. >> rick santelli, we did not forget about you, i assure you. w
on your guys' part because of the voter id law supported a lot of swing states that this report shows will effect minority voters. what is your response to him? >> i'm not going to engage in an argument with michael. the fact is that you have to have the resources to be able to have an effective ground operation in minority communities. one of the things that we've done at the rnc and i don't think anyone argues with this is we brought our financial condition back in order so we can hire hundreds of people across america which is what this plan calls for. i'm not looking to hire two people down the hallway and call it inclusion. i'm looking to get in the communities by the hundreds with paid people to make the case for the republican party. look, i think that's really the heart of what we're trying to do at the rnc. we're not competing the dnc, luke. we're competing with president obama's organization that is a granular community based organization that is perpetual in its nature and the fact is we have to get with it and do the same thing and try to do it even better. and so, look, i
